Can you explain to me how you pick something from THIS:
http://blocsonic.com/blog/net_audio_releases_for_the_week_of_november_29th_2007

Thats not really "caring", it's posting many releases at the same time (more than 30? wtf...) and it doesn't even say the genre of the releases.

Not to mention that is an automatically generated list from various feeds. If there was genre information in the feeds, I would have included it. I've merely centralized what you can find at Jamendo via their search engine and what can be found here at the archive, via their new release feed. In neither case can you have a quick overview of what's new. Believe it or not, my mere list is doing a service. Tell me where else you can find a complete listing from both sites?

Sorry, it is caring. If I could have included more relevant information (eg. Genre), I would have.

You can go ahead and "requestion" all you want. I found a need for it and so do others. If you don't, that's your prerogative, no skin off my back. Again, I say, before judging blocSonic for that one feature, check the netBloc compilations and how they're distributed. Check our "Randomizer", if you want to randomly discover new netlabel music. Check our Free Music Guide. Be sure to return, because that's only the beginning. Also, I'll be releasing, netBloc Vol. 10 tomorrow. Check it out if you'd like.

No... you're right, I don't care. That's why I invest a good part of my week trying to bring unique content to my visitors. Trying to shine the spotlight on the many artists/labels I have thus far, and will continue to do so in the future.

Good day to you.

Peace
Mike

That is a new release list... nothing more. Check my releases.

Thanks for attacking my site personally though.

Damn, people on internet should feel less "attacked".

"we are saying that there's also room for professionalism.... and if netlabels step up, then we'll give them their deserved shine"

And I just requestion a lot the professionalism into just gathering all the releases into one post with not much words about it.
How do I know I want to click on this or that url?

You're picking on a MINOR feature of the site. Please DO check my releases, because THAT is the heart of the project.

Again I say, when you come up with a way to collect the information I do in the lists in a more professional manner, then please let me know and I'll redirect blocSonic users to your listing.

I find nothing unprofessional about my release lists.

Checked and finally, it's indeed more useful than just this long list of urls.
Remind me of the defunct ko_lo project back in 2003 or so.

Though back in this time, there were so few netlabels that it was easier to make a choice and now, with the amount of what is released for free everyday on internet on netlabels OR independently, I wonder if making such compilations isn't missing many other things around...

The list is actually the first part of your website I've seen by googling around some words like "netlabels" and I completly failed at understanding the point of it all.

Well, thanks for giving the site a further study. It's appreciated. Though your initial comments weren't for nothing. It set a fire under me to update my ruby script which scrapes the feeds. I've come up with a plan to include not only genre or keywords(in the case of Archive.org), but also a small thumbnail of the cover. The listings will be much improved thanks to your input.

Peace
Mike

And as you seem to care about showing the "releases" as more important than the "lists", maybe considering the "releases" to be shown at first should do a better job :/

If you look at every blog post at blocSonic, it features the most recent netBloc release at the time of the posting. So yeah, the releases DO weigh more than the lists do. Do you not see that cover next to the list? The one that says "Current netBloc"? That is a release.

Anyway... this isn't about blocSonic... it's about the Thinner discussion. So let's move on.
